Hi there, I’m Daniel Wong.

I know you’re busy. You have children to take care of, a family to provide for, and many other responsibilities to fulfill. You don’t have time to scour the Internet for information, or read hundreds of books, or attend dozens of talks and seminars.
There’s good news: I’ve done the work for you.
So all you have to do is enter your email below. Once you do that, I’ll start sharing useful info about how to help your teenager become happy and successful. I’ll also send you my FREE 35-page e-book, 16 Keys To Motivating Your Teenager.
Here’s How You Can Learn Proven Principles To Help Your Teen Become Happy & Successful
I specialize in empowering teens to become both happy and successful—and I show parents how they can help, too. I’m a certified youth counselor and coach, and I’m honored to have been called a learning and teen expert.
I understand how teenagers think, and I know what motivates them. In addition, I’ve mastered hundreds of learning strategies and techniques that I’m excited to share with students.
Here are some ways through which I’d be glad to serve you (many of them are completely free!):
Books and e-books. I’ve written a bestselling book titled The Happy Student: 5 Steps to Academic Fulfillment and Success. I’ve also written two popular FREE e-books: (a) 16 Keys To Motivating Your Teenager and (b) The Unhappiness Manifesto: Don’t Do These 150 Things If You Want To Be Happy.
Online articles. At Daniel-Wong.com, I write about empowering teenagers, effective learning strategies, and education. I’m privileged that my writing has also been featured on The Huffington Post, Yahoo!, Pick The Brain, Think Simple Now and Personal Excellence, among others.
Speaking. I’ve spoken to thousands of teens, parents and educators in countries like the United States, Indonesia and Singapore. I regularly do talks and workshops at schools and organizations. One of the biggest honors I’ve had is to co-present with Dr. Carol Dweck at the National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP) Conference. Dr. Dweck is the (super)bestselling author of Mindset: The New Psychology of Success, and is the Lewis and Virginia Eaton Professor of Psychology at Stanford University. I also had the opportunity to give a TEDx talk at Duke University entitled Realistic Idealism: Seeing People as People and a TEDxYouth talk entitled People: Sweet Dreams Are Made of This.
1-to-1 programs. I work with students through The Exam Excellence (TEE) Mentoring Program, and with parents through the “Motivating My Unmotivated Teenager” Program. I also work with clients who have specific issues they wish to address related to learning, motivation or personal development.
As you can tell, I spend a lot of time with teens and parents. I spend even more time thinking about their needs, and about how I can serve them better.
Through this process, I’ve learned an incredible amount. I’d love to share this info with you, which I’m confident you’ll benefit from.

The Daniel Wong Backstory
Here’s my backstory, in case you’re interested.
As an 18-year-old, I’d achieved a lot of success. I was a top student from primary school all the way through junior college (the equivalent of elementary school through high school); I was the vice-captain of the basketball team; I was on the Chemistry Olympiad training team; I was a member of the Science Research Society; I’d racked up a whole bunch of awards and accolades; I’d received a full academic scholarship to study at Duke University (USA), where I eventually graduated summa cum laude with a double major.
But I suddenly realized that these accomplishments didn’t bring me the fulfillment I was looking for, because they weren’t motivated by the right purpose.
I had an unhealthy obsession with grades and performance. This obsession was destroying me from the inside out. I struggled through a period of depression as a teenager, and I was also a bullying victim.
While at Duke University, I underwent an intense process of learning, reflection and growth. Over a few years, I went from miserable overachiever to happy straight-A student.
My journey led me to pursue this mission:
To empower teenagers with the mindset and methods to lead a meaningful and marvelous life—and show parents how they can help, too.
I work with teens to ensure that they don’t make the mistakes that I made, while simultaneously empowering them to find long-lasting happiness and success.
I’m thrilled every time one of my clients experiences a breakthrough. I count myself blessed to be in the business of transforming lives and shaping destinies.
Some Random Facts About Me
I love reading. I’ve read hundreds of books on learning, teen development, psychology, education, and more.
In my free time, I enjoy juggling, lifting weights, and playing basketball.
I’ve never received a grade lower than an A- at a major exam. I received a full scholarship from Singapore Airlines to study at Duke University, where I graduated summa cum laude (the equivalent of First Class Honors). My GPA was 3.98 on a 4.0 scale. (I don’t say this to boast. I just want you to know that I’ve mastered many powerful learning strategies and techniques, which I’m excited to share with students.)
I run this business—where I write, speak and coach—full-time.
In 2013, I was awarded the JCI Singapore – Ten Outstanding Young Persons (TOYP) Merit Award. This was a tremendous honor!
I’m a member of the Global Speakers Federation and the Asia Professional Speakers – Singapore (APSS) association.
I’m married to a wonderful wife named Michele, and we have a son. It’s an amazing privilege to be a husband and father. My wife and son light up my world.
